Betting prediction: Fulham 1-1 Wolves

Wolves dominate the recent head-to-head’s against Fulham, winning four and drawing one in the process. But when it comes to current Premier League form, the two sides are separated by just a single point and a slightly better goal difference for Nuno Espirito Santo’s outfit. Wolves may be nine points clear of the Cottagers but they are also in the midst of relegation form and could struggle to secure a three-point haul on their travels. A draw at Craven Cottage would be a fair bet.

Fulham vs Wolves: Recommended bets

To Score Anytime: Pedro Neto

He has been one of the highlights of the season in the Premier League this term and another shining example of the next generation of young Portuguese players. Pedro Neto has shone a light on what has been an overall abysmal campaign for Wolves, and his club-leading eleven goal contributions this term (5 goals, 6 assists) may not make him a guarantee in terms of a goal threat, but his individual quality and intelligence in the final third has proven its worth on countless occasions this season. If Wolves bag a goal, he will likely be involved on either end of the service. As joint-leading scorer this term, that puts him ahead of the pack.

Full-Time Result: Draw

Based on form alone, it’s hard to see any other result here other than either side scraping out a 1-0 win. The bottom-half pair have garnered just a combined nine points across the last six matchdays in the Premier League, with goals still being a source of contention for both over the course of the entire campaign.

Fulham vs Wolves: Match preview

Goalscoring and chance creation has been the biggest bugbears for Fulham and Scott Parker this season, with the Cottagers hitting the second-fewest goals in the Premier League (24). Only bottom-club Sheffield United have found the back of the net on fewer occasions, and one has to think that if there was just a little more end product on this front, the Craven Cottage outfit could be looking at different fortunes entirely in 2020-21.

The loan-signing of former Sunderland striker Josh Maja from Girondins Bordeaux was meant to play a part in alleviating the lack of goals, but the Nigerian younger has just two goals in nine appearances and has not taken his chance during his return to English shores. Joint-2019-20 Championship-leading goalscorer and Serbian international Aleksandar Mitrović has never kicked on in the Premier League on multiple occasions with multiple clubs since his arrival from RSC Anderlecht back in 2015. However, recent performances for both club and country could suggest that he has a large role to play for the remainder of the season.

As Fulham has tried to add some expansive qualities when they’re in possession, a center-forward like Mitrović has been badly needed. This is where the failure of Maja to settle at the club really hurt Parker’s plans as well, but given Fulham’s best-possible XI, there could be a place for Mitrović yet. Able to hold up play well and bring the more mobile Ademola Lookman and Bobby De Cordova-Reid into play, while also combining with late runs from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, could afford Fulham some better combination play with which they could look to craft a few more chances. There are some winnable fixtured left for Fulham as well, and if they can garner some results against Wolves, Burnley, Saints, and Newcastle, they still may be able to escape the drop.

Fabio Silva must start to repay what has been paid

There have been some that have already begun to question the deal that saw young Portuguese center-forward Fabio Silva arrive at Wolves from Liga NOS giants FC Porto. In a deal that was reported to set the Molineux outfit back ~£36million and a wage packet on top of it rumored to be in the £80k/week range until 2025, by the end of the 2020-21 season Wolves will have already committed to spending £40million on a player who at current has just three goals to his name in 28-appearances in all competitions, including 10 starts.

That may be harsh on the Gondomar-native though, considering how poor Wolves have been in large swaths of the season while having to cope with the sale of Diogo Jota and the long-term injury of influential striker Raúl Jiménez. But in isolation, Silva himself has hardly justified the financial outlay that Wolves have already committed too irrespective of what his future may hold at the club. But the bigger question being raised is not whether or not Silva will develop into a very good player (or better), or if he can be blamed for a portion of the scoring drought that has settled comfortably at Wolves this season but rather if the money spent on him was wise, to begin with.

The simple answer is probably no. Wolves have done brilliantly overall when it comes to their level of recruitment as far back as 2017 in the summer before the season which won them promotion back to the Premier League. Would this same type of deal have been sanctioned then? Or for the two summers after it? It is hard to say, and this may not have been a question raised had Jiménez not gotten injured, or if loan-signing Willian José had contributed even partially in a manner that he was expected to since his winter arrival from Real Sociedad. But the reality may have to be that Silva is given a chance in a run of matchday XI selections because of the reality of the situation; Jiménez is still out, José has done little to nothing since coming on loan, and playing Silva in his natural position makes more sense than trying to shoe-horn in a different player. This may have been a signing with a scope for the long-term future of the club, but that timeline may need to be accelerated given the immediate circumstances,.

Fulham team news vs Wolves

Scott Parker will only be unable to call upon Tom Cairney – still – during preparations to host Wolves at Craven Cottage on Friday. Marek Rodák is also a doubt for Fulham.

Ademola Lookman is expected to be available for selection and if he is, will likely be in the matchday XI.

Wolves team news vs Fulham

Nuno Espirito Santo will come into yet another Premier League weekend program with big selection concerns, headlined by the continued long-term absence of Raúl Jiménez.

João Moutinho, Jonny, and Marçal are all also unavailable to feature for Wolves through injury, and Willy Boly is not yet fully prepped for a return after a positive Covid-19 diagnosis.
